Same applies at the airport.
However, this is India!
Agreed. We need to get rid of this 'doorstep delivery' mentality, leaving things behind for others to pick/clean up. Not to mention the extra exercise gained by walking to & from the stacking point.

To be fair, the establishments have also spoilt customers by mollycoddling them. Go to a McDonald's/KFC for example, someone will come running the moment you get up from your seat with your empty tray. What's wrong with getting rid of the tray ourselves after eating? Same happens at Big Bazaar, the security chap comes running, asking you leave the trolley beside your car, and he'll pick it up later. No wonder we simply assume that someone will clean up after us everywhere, and it adds to our nonchalance.

Second, you assign someone to make these guys return the carts.
It comes around to the same thing, since the attendants would ask for tips for taking the trolleys to their spots. Almost the same as paying to use the trolleys.
